A world-renowned French guitarist, a funky Portland saxophonist and a soulful northwest singer-songwriter walk into a casino... This is no joke but the very real and exciting lineup at the third-annual Smooth in Seattle outdoor summer jazz concert at Clearwater Casino & Resort. Paris-born Marc Antoine, whose guitar work has backed the likes of Sting, Rod Stewart and Cher, headlines the event, filling Clearwater's grassy lawn with his intricate multicultural urban groove. But first, saxophonist Patrick Lamb will play his signature magnetic fusion of R&B and rural southern roadhouse, and sweet-voiced Tacoma, Washington singer Stephanie Anne Johnson will open the show. Easy travel options are available from Seattle, including a free shuttle running from the ferry terminal. Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the event Learn More

“Despite its exuberant title, Gloria ranges across more emotions and moods in its half-hour than many a full-evening drama or ballet.” —Crosscut.com (Read the full review .)
The third annual collaboration of Mark Morris Dance Group with Seattle Symphony features a mostly Baroque music program paired with stunning dance movement. This year’s engagement includes Seattle Symphony performing Haydn’s Horn Concerto No. 2 in D major, A Lake; Bach’s Jesu, Meine Freude; and Vivaldi’s Gloria. The Tudor Choir will join Seattle Symphony for the Bach and Vivaldi pieces, and Gloria will feature special guest conductor, Seattle-native Mark Morris.
Conductor: Mark Morris
Composer: Antonio Vivaldi*
MMDG first premiered this piece in 1981 at Dance Theater Workshop in New York City. The New York Times said, “So much is going on at every moment that the mind and heart are dizzied, yet everything seems part of a whole. It’s really quite miraculous.”
Jesu, Meine Freude*
Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach
Conductor: Christian Knapp*
Premiered in 1993, Jesu, Meine Freude has been revived only a few times over the years because of the choir required to perform the piece. Thanks to the Tudor Choir, Seattle is among the limited cities where this piece will be shown outside of New York City.
Composer: Franz Joseph Haydn
Conductor: Christian Knapp*
Originally premiering on July 30, 1991, A Lake was performed by the White Oak Dance Project, the contemporary dance company co-founded by Mark Morris and Mikhail Baryshnikov. The Boston Globe described A Lake as a “magnificently lyrical work.”
